Maisie Williams is taking on a new and challenging role in iBoy, a new Netflix original. See the first trailer here!

We’re a long way from Westeros in this dark drama from Netflix, which looks like it was inspired by both Black Mirror and Mr Robot.

Also starring Bill Milner, Miranda Richardson and Rory Kinnear, iBoy follows a teenager who develops strange superpowers after a smartphone becomes embedded in his brain.

Watch the evocative trailer here:

Here’s the official Netflix synopsis for the movie:

“Tom is an average teenager whose world is turned on its head when a violent encounter with local thugs leaves fragments of his shattered smartphone embedded in his brain. He wakes from a coma to discover that returning to normal teenage life is impossible because he has developed a strange set of superpowers. With these new powers he sets out to seek revenge on the gang, who also assaulted his best friend Lucy.”

iBoy hits Netflix on January 27, 2017.
